McCain Ingraham debate

How does everyone feel about the Meghan McCain / Laura Ingraham issue? For those of you who don't know...Meghan McCain writes on thedailybeast.com and she wrote a piece about how she feels Ann Coulter is not representing Republicans in a good manner. She writes she is not appealing and her ideals are off... this is all based on her political idea of Coulter. Laura Ingraham later on in the week on her radio show said in a valley girl voice: "Ok, I was really hoping that I was going to get that role in the 'Real World', but then I realized that, well, they don't like plus-sized models. They only like the women who look a certain way. And on this 50th anniversary of Barbie, I really have something to say."

She attacked McCain based on her size, not on her political issues, which was McCain's point. And not only that, but it was directed towards an entirely different person/issue. To that, McCain replied "kiss my fat ass."

How is it that we, as women, still try to undermine one another? Here is a woman who went to Columbia, is clearly bright, contributes to multiple academic journels, and had her opinion nationally mocked because she isn't a stick figure? How have we let this happen?

I think it is so ridiculous that Ingraham did that. I mean, come on. What does a woman's political view have to do with her waist size? What kind of professional woman would want to put another down? Talk about backwards...

I agree w below. Also, if a man had said that women all over would be all over his ass for being a sexist pig and they would be right!

To be completely authentic, when I saw Megan McCain's picture on this blog I quickly decided that I no longer wanted to read it.**back to hollaback**
